Yes, but yours is not "Solito generally." As you've pointed out, Luigi would have cut you leaner jacket had you not asked him otherwise.

Well, I asked for what the father (Gennaro) makes for himself and for M. Marinella, which I assume is the core house style.

Perhaps they have a generational issue similar to the one at Rubinacci where daddy likes it the drape and junior likes it the dash. Kids these days.

Entirely possible and very plausible. The kids and the granfathers in Naples couldn't express more different tastes in style--which I suppose is another way of making my point.

There's also a Manhattan location. Chris, I recommend a side of St. Louis spare ribs as a side order.

The picture gets more clear.

The sons get suits from Mina to have a youthful, lean cut with vigor. The fathers go Rubinaci for the generic, safe neapolitan look and the grandfathers go to Solito for the, I don't give a crap I want comfort and I want it loose fit

Good to know, looking forward to both.

T4 used to, I believe. In fact, I know he used to, but I have no idea if he still does. Panico's own suits are quite nice.

Doesn't the senior Cappelli use him too?

I only know one Cappelli (around 45 or so,) and his suits are from the late Formosa. Great looking stuff, IMO. Very proper. In fact, I think his personal style is as good as anybody's I have seen.

Panico's suits are weightless, lighter than LH's IMO.
